Anyone have a pic of a bigger tree growing through a vechicle ? Lots of patina on the F-5 too.

Sweet, this was my first pick up. Replaced the 235 six with a double hump 327 out of an SS Impala.

In my opinion the custom aspect (chromed,lowered) is hideous
but if it were done in stock work truck or 4x4 it would be cooler.

I tend to agree with you, also if that truck was set up as a hauler (1ton axles and diesel engine) I would be more apt to like it.

That's pretty cool. Ford in Australia did the same thing but sold only about 400 or so.

And even one for sale

Cheers.

The E7 should give you a good run for your money.

We only got the 38's ( prone to cracking the housing when pushed hard off road ) with the small flat end caps or the 44's with the cone ... that eventually leak

Anything bigger was usually a completely different style and easily picked.

Random web pic' of a series II super' fitted with our ( Oz ) bigger option.
